Accelerated Reader

 

Accelerated Reader Program

Students in our elementary school participate in the Accelerated Reader program. Every nine weeks, students are given a goal of AR points that are earned through reading books and taking tests.  The STAR assessment tool is used to track student progress.  At the end of the 2011-2012 school year, 92% of our students were reading at or above grade level. Click here for a breakdown by grade of students reading at or above grade level.

Students are awarded each nine weeks for reaching their AR goal:

1st 9 Weeks – Lunch with the Principal and guest storytellers

2nd 9 Weeks – AR T-shirt (designed by a student)

3rd 9 Weeks – Ice Cream Party

At the end of the year, students who met their goal all four nine weeks get to go on a field trip to McKay’s and Sonic. (I sent you pictures of this last year. They could go here.)
